When I read the press release, “Dancing on Edge, New Military Thriller,” it reminded me of shots from “D Man in the Waters”by internationally acclaimed choreographer Bill T. Jones.
If a grown-up book had pictures, I would imagine these for “Hide and Seek.”
How far would you be willing to go to help someone in danger? Could you risk everything to save a stranger or someone you hardly know? Risking all to help others is an enduring human theme and, while most of us would like to think we could and would, novelist Major (Ret.) Jeff Struecker and his award-winning co-author, Alton Gansky, lead readers straight into the heart of these questions in their newest military thriller, Hide and Seek (BH Publishing Group, July 2012).
Reflective of Struecker’s personal combat experiences and deftly chiseled into a perfect read by Gansky, Hide and Seek is an explosive, pulsating fictional narrative of courage, honor and sacrifice. With skill and precision, this latest thriller transports the reader through the chaos of a government overthrow and into the heart of what really happens at every level of a stealth engagement. With the turn of each page, the reader is given personal insight into heart-stopping encounters with the enemy, spiritual battles waged within the soldier’s psyche and the emotional turmoil that family members must continually endure.

His personal experiences in Mogadishu, Somalia were documented in the New York Times bestseller and major motion picture Black Hawk Down.During his twenty-two years of active duty, he also fought in war in Panama, Kuwait, Afghanistan and Iraq. Now retired from military service, Struecker currently serves as pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Columbus, Georgia.
